    Is It Possible To Eat Too Much Fruit?

    According to HIF health expert Susie Burrell the answer is a definite yes – “I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but while fruit is exceptionally healthy, it does contain kilojoules, which means that it is possible to eat too much fruit”. With this in mind we asked Susie for her guidance on how not to ‘over-do it’ – and of course she hasn't disappointed. In her latest post for our Healthy Lifestyle Blog, Susie discusses what types of fruit are best and offers her advice on how often you should be eating it to get the nutritional benefits fruit provides, without a kilojoule overload.
